CBSE Instructs Schools to Complete Registrations for Class 9 & 11 till August 15

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released a notification regarding the change in schedule for admission to classes 9 and 11 in all its affiliated schools. Board has asked all its schools to manage the admissions in class 9 and class 11 for current academic session, till August 15. However, beyond 15th, all cases of admission to these two classes will be managed by the board itself. In that case, schools will have to send all the details of such cases to the concerned Regional Office.

CBSE has notified that the schedule has been revised only for seven categories, which are:

  • Shifting of family
  • Shifting to hostel
  • Shifting from Hostel
  • Readmission in other schools after failing in these two classes
  • Better education
  • Long distance
  • Medical ground

Check below the revised schedule for admission to CBSE Classes 9 and 11:

Categories

Revised Admission Schedule

Processing Charge

Category of Admissions- S. No. 4 to 10

i) Upto 15th August of the academic session

No action at the end of CBSE and no processing charges

ii) W.e.f. 16th August upto 30th September of the academic session

All cases to be sent to the concerned Regional Office alongwith processing charges of Rs. 1000/- per student

The board had earlier announced the changes in norms for admission to class 9 and class 11 in 2020. In order to regulate the admissions to these two classes, board has decided to take over the whole admission process.

Under the new set of laws, if a candidate wishes to take admission in a CBSE school in class 9 and 11, he/she will have to substantiate reasons behind the change. The board has formulated Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for admissions to these classes. However, principals and teachers are criticising this decision of board to interfere into the school’s admission policies. Many of them termed the new CBSE norm as unnecessary intervention.

Parents are also not in support of these new clauses for admission as they found them to be more complicated and unrealistic. For example, if a student wants to take admission in any of classes 9 and 11 in a CBSE- affiliated school citing better education facilities then his/her parents will be required to submit the application along with the last five years’ result stats of both the schools- one in which their ward is currently studying and the one in which they seek admission. Qualification and teaching experience of the staff members of both the schools will also have to be submitted at the same time.

Board officials marked that the new admission rules will be effective to streamline the process and make sure that only “genuine students” get admissions.

The changed rules, however, will be implemented from the academic year 2020-2021, whereas those seeking change in school can do so in the current year as per the present rules.

CBSE will Regulate Admissions in class 9th & 11th from 2020

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to regulate the whole process of admission to classes 9 and 11 in all its affiliated schools across the country from next year.

Board has formulated the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to standardise admissions in these classes which are currently conducted by schools on the basis of their own rules.

CBSE has informed all its schools to follow the guidelines mentioned in the SOPs, while conducting admissions to classes 9 and 11. A strict action will be taken against those found violating the board’s instructions.

General rules for accepting admissions to CBSE class 9 and 12

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) have been formulated for admissions in these classes

For admission to these two classes, CBSE has defined 11 categories some of which are as below:

  • Transfer of parents
  • Shifting of family
  • Shifting of hostel
  • Re-admission in other school after failing in class 9 or class 12
  • For better education
  • Due to distance concerns
  • Due to medical condition
  • To change the education board

Board has also put some enhanced conditions under these categories. For example, if a student wants to take admission in any of classes 9 and 11 in another school affiliated to CBSE for better education facilities then his/her parents will be required to submit the application along with the last five years’ result stats of both the schools, one in which their ward is currently studying and the one in which they seek admission. Qualification and teaching experience of the staff members of both the schools will also have to be submitted at the same time.

Reaction of educators and teachers on CBSE’s admission clauses

Most of the teachers and principals have come with a complete criticism for board’s idea of regulating school admissions. They have a view that no education board should intervene in the admission policy.

In addition to this, they criticised the concept of evaluating the quality of teachers of a school through its results. A principle of a CBSE school said, “Results cannot represent or measure the learning outcomes of students or schools.”

Why did CBSE decide to regulate the admissions to classes 9 and 11?

According to Sanyam Bhardwaj, CBSE’s controller examinations, this whole idea of regulating the school admission by SOPs was taken to streamline the process so that only genuine candidates get admission. This will ultimately improve the standards of education and help achieve better results in board examinations.

Chapter Peasants and Farmers focuses on the histories of the emergence of different forms of farming and peasant societies. It also illustrates the Changes within rural economies in the modern world. The second chapter Chapter Clothing: A Social History is about how changes in clothing in England and India were shaped by their social movements. The third chapter History and Sport: The Story of Cricket is on the history of cricket in India and its connection to the politics of caste, region and community.

The revised textbooks will hit the shelves this month, before the new academic session begins. In 2017, NCERT made 1,334 changes, which included additions, correction and data update in 182 textbooks.

NCERT’s this decision to delete a part of the Class 9 History textbook is a part of the curriculum rationalisation programme initiated after Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar’s proposal to cut down the syllabus and reduce the burden on students. Last year, he had requested the NCERT to reduce syllabus for all classes saying that "There is a huge load of books and information, and students have no time. There is no time for physical education, value education and life skills.”

Although Javadekar’s recommendation to NCERT was to cut curriculum by half across all subjects, but sources from NCERT said that the content in Social Science textbooks has been reduced by almost 20 per cent, whereas in Mathematics and Sciences, minimum reduction has been done.

CBSE Class 9-12th: Schools To Submit Previous Year Question Papers For CBSE Question Bank

Taking forward its new motto of 'assessment as learning', Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to prepare a question bank for classes 9 to 12.

The question bank will be available on an IT platform and will be 'user-friendly'. The question bank will be available not just for students but also for teachers to incorporate in their 'pedagogy and assessment'.

For the question bank, CBSE has asked its affiliated schools to submit previous year question papers the schools have been preparing for annual exams of classes 9 and 11, and for internal examinations for classes 10 and 12.

"The Questions may be sent for all academic subjects (English, Hindi, Science, Social Science and Mathematics for classes IX and X and; Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, English Core and Elective, Hindi Core and Elective, Accountancy, Business Studies, Economics, History, Political Science, Geography, Psychology, Sociology, Physical Education and Computer Science for classes XI and XII) and skill (vocational) subjects for classes IX to XII for as many past years as available with school/group of schools."

The schools are also required to submit any marking scheme along with the questions.

Apart from the question papers, CBSE has also asked schools to submit answer copies of each subject's topper, in each of these exams. These answers will be used as exemplar answers.

CBSE has also said that schools need not send the details of the students whose exemplar answer copies are being sent to protect the privacy of the students.

In addition to the question papers, schools may also send over any other set of questions such as problem-solving assessment, or aptitude tests, etc.

NCERT drops 3 chapters from Class 9, one on caste struggles

The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has dropped three chapters from its Class 9 history textbook, including one that illustrates caste conflict through the struggles of the so-called ‘lower caste’ Nadar women of Travancore, who were forced to keep their upper bodies uncovered.

The decision to delete almost 70 pages from the textbook, titled India and the Contemporary World – I, is part of the curriculum rationalisation exercise initiated at HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar’s behest to reduce the burden on students.

This is the second textbook review undertaken under the incumbent government.

The revised textbooks will hit the shelves this month, before the new academic session begins. In 2017, NCERT made 1,334 changes, which included additions, correction and data update in 182 textbooks.

Of the three chapters deleted, one (Clothing: A Social History) is on clothing and how social movements influenced how we dressed.

The second chapter (History and Sport: The Story of Cricket) is on the history of cricket in India and its connection to the politics of caste, region and community.

The third chapter (Peasants and Farmers) focuses on the growth of capitalism and how colonialism altered the lives of peasants and farmers.

‘Clothing: A Social History’ is the last chapter of the textbook. It shows how changes in clothing in England and India were shaped by their social movements.

The section ‘Caste Conflict and Dress Change’, which is on the strict social codes regarding food and dress in India in the past, made headlines in 2016 when politicians objected to references to the “Upper Cloth Revolt” in southern India.

The Shanars, later known as Nadars, were considered a “subordinate caste”. Its men and women were expected to follow the local custom of not using umbrellas, not wearing shoes and gold ornaments and not covering their upper bodies before the dominant castes.

However, under the influence of Christian missionaries, Shanar women converts started wearing tailored blouses.

In 2016, the CBSE issued a circular to all its affiliated schools informing them that the section ‘Caste Conflict and Dress Change’ “stands omitted from the curriculum and no questions from this section should be asked in 2017”. However, this section remained part of the textbook – until NCERT’s curriculum rationalisation exercise in which the complete chapter was dropped.

This chapter also focused on the importance of the swadeshi movement and how it influenced the politics of clothing and Mahatma Gandhi’s experiments with clothing to show the changing attitude to dress in India.

The chapter ‘Peasants and Farmers’ focused on three countries – small cottagers in England, wheat farmers of USA and opium producers of Bengal. In it, students read about what happened to different rural communities with the coming of modern agriculture and what happens when different regions of the world are integrated with the capitalist world market.

In this context, the chapter looks specifically at how, under colonial rule, India started producing a range of crops for the world market.

Although Javadekar’s recommendation to NCERT was to cut curriculum by half across all subjects, NCERT, sources said, reduced content in social science textbooks by almost 20 per cent, but kept cuts to a minimum in mathematics and sciences. The changes, they said, had been made based on over one lakh comments received from parents, students and teachers.

As part of the above exercise, NCERT introduced a poem by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in its Class 8 Hindi textbook after it was advised by the government to explore ways of “immortalising his contributions and achievements”.
